Spring is almost here!

I can't tell you how happy I am to see the sun out longer, the snow melting, and the temperature increasing!! Yes, I have spring fever in a bad way!!! I can't wait to open my windows up, let the fresh air in and turn the heat off. I'm looking forward to running outside again and most of all sitting on my deck sipping on coffee or wine, and enjoying the boys running around in our backyard!
Life in general has been so busy lately...full of fun opportunities but busy just the same. I have been traveling alot with work. While I enjoy seeing new places and meeting great people I miss being away from the boys! Chad was able to come with me on my last trip and we took a couple of extra days to see NYC which was a blast. I dragged him to see Carlos's bakery (The Cake Boss) in Jersey and loved every minute of it!! I have pics to post soon. I also started taking quilting classes a month ago. Don't laugh but learning how to quilt has been on my bucket list for years and the opportunity fell into my lap. So every Tuesday night I drive in from the city make a cup of coffee and head off to quilting class. Slowly i'm becoming a night person and staying up until the wee hours quilting. I love it!
The boys are doing fantastic and getting so big. We just registed N for kindergarten and Ky is right behind him heading to 1/2day school in the fall. Their personalities are blossoming and I love just listening to them talk to either other. We are so blessed and I don't take it for granted. Being a mom is truly the most amazing gift and I'm thankful for each day I have with them.
God has been working on my heart over the past month and I can't tell you what a peace he has given me just about everything. I finally feal like I have "turned the corner" and am moving forward with all that HE has for me. He's been putting a lot on my heart about serving others for Him and has brought some neat opportunities to do so. Once I have all of the details figured out I can't wait to share them with you. I'm also doing a Bible study with my mom and girlfriend. We are studying Esther, the Beth Moore Bible study and I am loving it. I have done two Beth Moore studies in the past but have often felt overwhelmed by them because they are packed full of good stuff but at the same time alot to complete in a week. We decided to go through what we can and not set a time limit. It's been awesome spending two weeks talking about the first chapter of Esther. God has blessed our early morning meetings on Saturdays!!
If there is anything I can pray about for you please let me know!! Prayer is so powerful.

THE Cake Boss?!?! How fun!! I'm excited for you about your new opportunities and I LOVE Beth Moore studies. She is so encouraging and speaks so well. Sounds like your family is staying busy. I can't wait for the Spring either, although the leaves are already changing here. It's supposed to be mid-60s all weekend! YAY! Enjoy your weekend!
